We can teach every high school kid in the US, and then around the world, how to fix climate change with accurate, updatable info, scaling from a three hour game to a full semester lesson plan, matched to the region in which they live.

Accurate information about energy is important, because we have to build new infrastructure quickly and people have to agree to it. New technology will not be a factor in the short timeline left to achieve the 2030 goal of cutting emissions in half, but we have the technology we need. It’s the pace of deployment that is lagging. There are also constraints on the amount of energy we can use. These rules informed us as we developed Energetic, which is matched to the real world.
